We are the guardians of our health. We choose what methods we use to protect, support and care for our health and for ourselves. Massage can support the individual in their pursuit of a healthy happy active life, even before illness and injury occur. Those seeking Massage Therapy need not be in severe pain or state of illness. The real strength of Therapeutic Massage rests in its role as a preventative therapy.

Massage Therapy is regulated in Ontario through the Ministry of Health by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario or CMTO.  This regulation protects the public by providing the assurance of safe effective treatment in a clean environment. A Massage Therapist must undergo thorough training and a provincial licensing examination before becoming registered to work in Ontario as a Registered Massage Therapist or RMT. An RMT is then required to maintain a high standard of knowledge and skill through continuing education throughout their career.

Massage Therapy produces a therapeutic effect by acting on many systems of the body at once including the musculoskeletal, nervous, lymphatic and circulatory. Through the manual manipulation of the soft tissues, specifically muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joint capsules, the RMT can alleviate discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse and many chronic pain conditions, as well as support the general health of the individual. Specialized treatments can also be provided to aid with long-term pathological conditions and diseases, with post-operative care, and with comfort during pregnancy. An improvement in the mental/emotional state of the individual often occurs with the improvement of the physical function of the body.
